Malad-Mîn was a dwarven empire that reigned during the Horgon Era and into the first part of the First Epoch. The people of this empire were concentrated in the western reaches of Khalas. When the empire was formed, it was ruled by a king. Later on, the government changed to an oligarchy called Khazir-Mizir. This government was composed of 20-30 clan heads that served as the lower house of Khazir-Mizir. The upper house was headed by 4-6 leaders from the wealthiest clans.
Malad-Mîn's enemies were the giants of Ice Cap, those of the Gadstill Dynasty and the eldritch empire of Saer Erkjorg. They also warred with the goliath and the Azwyr Amoruk of Gamakkhazar. By the early part of the First Epoch, Malad-Mîn had driven the goliath to the far eastern reaches of Khalas.
In the Year 86, Malad-Mîn fell to the Khalas-Tûr, ending the Mulinburam War. The fall of Malad-Mîn split the population into two groups. Roughly half went west, establishing the Brisingr Federation, the other made for Nûl-Bazân.
